Have you ever tried to onboard someone to the cryptocurrency sphere, and ended up being treated as though you were a scammer? Have you been told that crypto is all about money laundering and this virtual money is not real?
Well, I have... and I have been on both sides of the divide. You see, it was back in 2016 when my friend made me sign up as his affiliate or referee to tens of faucet sites to tap for satoshis, with various time intervals. There were so many zeroes after the decimal point, with a total of eight digits that I lost interest. I saw no value in them, much to my regret now. Honestly, I thought that it was quite sad if I had to stick in front of the computer, with thirty, forty tabs opened, tapping faucets, of whatever currency that I didn't even know, mostly with no value (at the time). Meanwhile, I was traveling all over the country living my life, with a dream job that allowed me to enjoy the luxuries of travel for free.
Each time I came home after a trip, I would be so tired and overwhelmed with paperwork that I didn't feel like having my computer slowed down with those thirty, forty tabs. And so, that was how I missed the Bitcoin Boat.
Fast forward to 2021, I would say that the launch of smartBCH has been the most exciting event during this pandemic. Locked up at home I was reintroduced to cryptocurrencies. This time, compared to 2016, I understood their value and quite diligently tapped faucets and went into writing for crypto, as opposed to writing for fiat currencies.
Even then, due to a crazy workload, I missed the announcement of the launch of smartBCH at the end of August, without an inkling of the CashCats airdrop, until someone I know announced that she was a lucky recipient of a MILLION $CATS worth 0.3 BCH.... WHOA.... I was sad... How come no one told me about the chance to win a million $CATS token? I felt left out, I felt like no one cared about me to tip me off. Oh well, I have always had to work extremely hard for everything that I own, so missing this opportunity was not something new.
Following $CATS, there was just one airdrop after another. Most were genuine, but whether they had a value or not remained to be seen at the point in time. I was usually late to the scene, though, and would only receive the second or third tier of the rewards. I was still thankful for at least catching something. Somehow, my luck being what it is, I was usually overlooked when it came to something that was available to all, and I had to make sure to fight for my share. Despite being labeled "an airdrop hunter", I had no choice as I did not have the free time or the mind to explore more of smartBCH. I would just fall asleep at the end of the day after pulling long hours at work, including overtime.
While my peers were providing liquidity pools, farming, swapping, and basically profiting and growing their smartBCH portfolio from the free airdrops, I was doing nothing to make my crypto work for me. People say that airdrop hunters do not offer value to the token and that we just suck them dry. I vehemently deny this but mehhh, I don't have the energy to fight the case. All I know is that airdrops bring attention to holders, and if we sync with it, we WILL invest. When students start earning, when homemakers have extra cash, when working adults start saving in crypto instead of in fixed deposits, we WILL invest.
And so, after some months, when my workload began to ease, I started to explore and invest. While at first airdrops allowed me the opportunity to dip my toe in the space, thus forcing me to keep an eye on the smartBCH chain, when time allowed me to explore the blockchain, I did not have to start from the bottom.
With Bitcoin, I felt that I had missed the boat. I didn't see value in the satoshis and I had zero interest to learn up all the technology and the 101 jargon. With smartBCH, I have never felt this excited about crypto before. I feel like I am growing with the blockchain, I am digesting its development as they happen. Talking to my friend, a crypto veteran about smartBCH, he felt like I was talking in Greek because he did not understand a thing, but he was surprised at how far I have come just one year of getting back into cryptocurrency. With smartBCH, the boat is moving with me onboard!
There is wealth to be made on smartBCH, there is no doubt about it. Even if I am not as savvy as some of my friends, or I may not have as large a risk appetite as them, I am taking steps to invest and that's what's important. For one, I have minted LAWPunks, which are now working for me to earn a passive income. Finally, with my eyes opened to the new opportunities of NFTs, which were previously merely digital art in my opinion, I minted $FATCAT NFTs and hope to put these fatty cattos to work, work around the clock until they are "slim slim", when mining is available, according to $FATCAT's whitepaper.
Ahhhhh from the way I write, you surely think that I have perused their whitepaper. Nope, not a word. Not for $FATCAT, not for any other token that I have invested in! With the amount of content that I produce in a single day, do you think I want to read more? No way! I will go with faith. And I have faith that smartBCH is the new crypto playground. Come join us to play, if you haven't yet... but of course, always DYOR! 🤣
